The App Store has developed quite an audience for tower defense style games as of late. So it’s no surprise to see a variety of games use different gimmicks and twists. However, Sega’s recent take on the genre gives it a unique visual style.
Originally released in Japan as Genpei Taisen Emaki, the game has made quite a name for itself on the Japanese iOS marketplace. Because of this, Sega decided that its intuitive tower defense based on feudal-era emaki paintings would be a welcome fit for the western market.
